Gecko Gauges for increased productivity! We know what a fantastic product JamesHardie fibre cement boards are. Installation is much easier if you are fixing with a colleague, but if you are working with one pair of hands you need a Gecko Gauge.
The Gecko Gauge and JamesHardie planking
Firstly, the Gecko Gauge clamps help users install fibre cement siding up to 48% faster than traditional methods. The user clamps a pair of Gecko Gauges to the siding course, allowing them to gauge and support the next course for nailing; a Friction-Cam mechanism on the gauge provides the holding power to support 12-foot siding lengths.
Working as a pair, the Gecko Gauge clamps to each siding course, acting as a second set of hands to gauge and support the next course for nailing. Get fast, accurate installation with less fatigue and virtually no layout. The Gecko Gauge has been recognised as the fastest and simplest fibre cement siding tool.
While the product is made in America it has been modified for European metric boards. Therefore the gauge adjusts at 10mm for 100mm-240mm reveals and is designed for 8mm thick fibre cement cladding products.
Gecko Gauges act as a second set of hands to gauge and support the next course for nailing. Please note, this product (SA9038m) is designed for the 8mm European boards, many products sold elsewhere are intended for the American market.
